Subject[PATCH 4.19 072/142] RDMA/core: Add GIDs while changing MAC addr only for registered ndev
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


[ Upstream commit d52ef88a9f4be523425730da3239cf87bee936da ]

Currently when MAC address is changed, regardless of the netdev reg_state,
GID entries are removed and added to reflect the new MAC address and new
default GID entries.

When a bonding device is used and the underlying PCI device is removed
several netdevice events are generated. Two events of the interest are
CHANGEADDR and UNREGISTER event on lower(slave) netdevice of the bond

Sometimes CHANGEADDR event is generated when netdev state is
UNREGISTERING (after UNREGISTER event is generated). In this scenario, GID
entries for default GIDs are added and never deleted because GID entries
are deleted only when netdev state is < UNREGISTERED.

This leads to non zero reference count on the netdevice. Due to this, PCI
device unbind operation is getting stuck.

To avoid it, when changing mac address, add GID entries only if netdev is
in REGISTERED state.
